Kim Kardashian, Emma Roberts Join American Horror Story Season 12

Updated: Apr 10, 2023

Days after it was announced that former The Resident star Matt Czuchry would be joining the new season of American Horror Story, now comes word that Emma Roberts and Kim Kardashian would be added to the cast.

Kim Kardashian has just announced on her Instagram that she’s starring in the 12th season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk’s American Horror Story this summer. She’ll headline with the franchise’s star Emma Roberts in a season that’s being dubbed “Delicate”.

The announcement was made in a creepy video to the broken theme of “Rock a-Bye Baby”. Roberts also posted the same video on her IG.

THR revealed this AM, that the season will be written and showrun by Halley Feiffer. A first for the anthology series, the latest season will be based on Danielle Valentine’s thriller novel Delicate Condition, due out in August. Novel reportedly follows a woman who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens. Delicate Condition is described as a feminist update of Rosemary’s Baby.

Reportedly, Murphy was impressed by Kardashian’s 2021 SNL hosting gig and began talking last summer about her joining the AHS family.

The reality star of 15-plus years, Kardashian, ended her Keeping Up With the Kardashians on E!, only to relaunch the family on Hulu with the new series The Kardashians last year. Season 3 of the Hulu series premieres on May 25 with new episodes on Thursday.

Roberts joined the AHS ensemble in 2013 with season 3’s Coven. She also starred in the series season installments Freak Show, Cult, Apocalypse and 1984 entries. It’s been four years since we last saw her on the show. Feiffer previously wrote on Dear Edward, Roar, Kidding and Murphy’s Impeachment: American Crime Story.

Let's not forget at one point he was also impressed with NeNe Leakes, and we all know she's not that good of an actress either.

And here I thought Keeping up with the Kartrashians was our American Horror Story, since it's quite obvious that adding Kim to the series definitely feels like stunt casting.

Fingers crossed sher character gets the Paris Hilton treatment a la House of Wax.

I like that the new season is inspired by Rosemary's Baby, a film I absolutely love. However, I don't have a lot of faith in the AHS franchise because it's been almost a decade since they've had a good cohesive season.

Quiet as it's kept the series should have ended eight seasons ago after Coven, because since then the series has gone downhill.

I had high hopes for AHS:NYC because the premise was supposed to be a gay slasher film.

However like all of Ryan Murphy's projects, it starts out one way and by the end of the season ends up a disjointed, convoluted mess.
